This delicious, nourishing herbal soup mix packet is easy to prepare.

As we begin to prepare for Autumn and Winter, it is important to nourish the Metal element by adding more Yin foods to protect us from the dryness of the season. Plus, we LOVE figs! Figs are one of the oldest cultivated crops throughout the world, and are often said to be a symbol of peace and abundance. Entering the Lung, Large Intestine and Stomach meridians, figs can promote the secretion of saliva to soothe a sore throat and dry cough, as well as being supportive to the functions of digestion and elimination. Pork, which is neutral, sweet and salty, also moistens dryness and benefits the Spleen, Stomach and Kidneys.

The herbs within this soup are all supportive for this season, and combine well together. Qian Shi and Lian Zi are sweet and neutral, entering the Spleen and Kidneys, with astringing properties. Lian Zi calms the Spirit and is helpful for Heart and Kidney Yin deficiency. Two of the Yin tonics, Bai He and Yu Zhu, are sweet and cooling, sharing the function of entering the Lung meridian to clear heat and moisten dryness from Yin deficiency patterns presenting with a dry mouth and sore throat. Bai He also clears Heart heat and calms the Spirit, and Yu Zhu tonifies the Qi of the middle Jiao, along with Yi Yi Ren. The third Yin tonic, Bei Sha Shen, nourishes Lung, Stomach, Kidney and Liver Yin and cools Lung Heat, particularly if there is phlegm. Long Yan Rou always adds a sweetness and warmth, entering the Heart and Spleen to nourish the Blood. Shan Yao is a sweet, and neutral Qi tonic, used in this recipe to anchor the functions of the other herbs and rounding out the depth of flavor and texture. Everything in this soup can be eaten, and we hope you enjoy this extremely nourishing and protective tonic for the Metal season!
